Jordan will downgrade its diplomatic representation with Qatar, it said on Tuesday, after examining the "cause of the crisis" between Doha and several other Arab states.

Jordan also revoked the license of Doha-based TV channel Al Jazeera, government spokesman Mohammad al Momani said.

Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt, Yemen and Bahrain said on Monday they would sever all ties with Qatar, accusing it of supporting terrorism.
